The Pasteur FabLab is a prototyping platform that aims to help researchers with the design and production of their projects and provide access to rapid prototyping facilities (3D printer, CNC, CAD). It’s a platform for design, 3D modeling, rapid prototyping, iterative development, production, techniques and materials.
How does it work ?
After discussing your needs, the FabLab will help you realize your project by organizing design and manufacturing. It can also provide support if you wish to learn CAO softwares or be autonomous on the prototyping machines.
The Pasteur Fab Lab has three facilities:
- the mechanical workshop, whose suite of instruments will be gradually expanded to meet ever-increasing requirements,
- an Open Fab Lab, currently being set up on the 1st floor of the François Jacob building, in the Tech Lab space. Here users have free access to CNC machines and 3D printers once they have completed training,
- access to the external cutting-edge prototyping facility, Usine IO. The facility’s equipment includes wood and metal numerical control machines, 3D printers with fused deposition modeling or ColorJet printing technology, 3D scanners, CAD/CAM systems, and laser cutters. Usine IO can accommodate a maximum of two Institut Pasteur staff at a time, and Albane will be regularly on the premises to supervise your projects. To make an appointment contact the Fab Lab.
If you have any queries relating to the Fab Lab, please contact Albane, firstname.lastname@example.org, or ext. 8124, or ask to be added to the Fablab mailing list.
